  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, steep the shallot in the vinegar for 5 minutes. Stir in the olive oil, then add the sour cream and garlic and season with salt and pepper.

  • In a large bowl, toss the endives with the anchovies and toasted pita. Add the sour cream dressing and toss well. Spoon onto 4 plates and serve.

Suggested Pairing

White anchovies are terrific with cava, Spain's earthy, affordable sparkling wine.
